New Zealand Mint

The New Zealand Mint is a privately-owned company in Auckland, New Zealand. Although the company produces legal tender commemorative coins on behalf of various governments, it is not affiliated with the government of New Zealand. New Zealand Mint's bullion products, coins and medallions are produced for both domestic and international markets.

The company is best known for its licensed high-quality gold and silver bullion coins featuring iconic characters and images from Star Wars, Disney, DC Comics, Harry Potter from popular movie and film franchises. The mint also offers a range of services including secure gold and silver bullion storage.

Star Wars gold and silver coins feature icons from the Star Wars universe. The series includes coins dedicated to popular long-running characters Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia, alongside the newer mythos with Star Wars Silver Rounds featuring scenes from the Mandalorian and others.

The New Zealand Mint issues a number of different Disney-themed coin series. The proof-like 1 oz silver rounds feature characters from classic Disney films such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and characters from newer films like "The Lion King," "Frozen," and "Aladdin.".

The Harry Potter silver coins feature designs based on the world created by author J.K. Rowling that includes images of the characters, the Hogwarts Houses, and other elements from the series.

The New Zealand mint is also licensed to produce investment and collectible bullion coins for many of the DC Comics universe such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, The Punisher and most others.

Each coin is typically struck in .999 silver or gold and is considered legal tender under the authority of Niue, a small island country in the South Pacific Ocean.

Niue is a small island country in the South Pacific that is known to issue a variety of bullion coins in collaboration with the New Zealand Mint for the economic benefits tied to the concept of "coin seigniorage." In the case of bullion coins, seigniorage is the profit that a government makes by issuing currency. The profit comes from the difference between the face value of the coin and the cost to produce and distribute it. When a country like Niue issues a coin by contracting with the New Zealand Mint, the coins are sold to dealers and collectors around the world, and Niue earns income from this process.

The coins, featuring popular cultural icons and themes, also raise awareness of the tiny country and help promote the country internationally and helping to boost tourism.
